Reading – Reading remains core to all learning and is used to drive our topic. We shall be doing this though our class novels of ‘Kiss the Dust’, ‘A Story Like the Wind’ and a selection of poetry and non-fiction texts. Children take part in whole class guided reading and additional adult-led group reading sessions during the week.
Home reading books are available from the school and can be changed by the children at any time. Reading is part of your child’s homework and they have a challenge to read at least five times a week. Please, would you listen to your child read so that you can ask him/her questions and help them improve their understanding and fluency? We would be grateful if you could then write a note in their planner to say they have read to you.
Recommended reads linked to topic:
Homework – Children will be expected to show that they have read for at least 20 minutes from Mondays to Friday. They can either ask an adult to sign that they have read or write a summary sentence to show their understanding in their reading record.
Spellings – Each child has a personalised spelling list which will be practised and tested in class.
If you have any queries about anything that is happening in class, please pop in to see us. Hopefully, we will be able to help you then or arrange a time when we can discuss any issues with you that will need longer time.
